At Hudson Montessori School we believe that learning becomes meaningful when it is connected to real life. Integrating knowledge through various experiences provides for improved learning, increased interest and a willingness to try new challenges. One of the unique and special components of our program is our Yearlong Study based on an annual theme. Each year the school focuses on many facets of a global theme that excites, motivates and engages all our children in learning across the curriculum and throughout the school. The year-long study culminates with the schools Annual Social Studies Fair and Year-End Celebration.
Our annual theme for the year 2017- 2018 is Industrial Revolution and the Birth of Cities.
Man has always been a maker and an inventor. From the earliest pebble tools to the advanced technologies of today, man has been creating ways to improve life and solve problems. To showcase man’s ingenuity, our theme for this year is the “The Industrial Revolution and the Growth of Cities”.
The Upper Elementary students are exploring the benefits and challenges of the Industrial Revolution. The Lower Elementary classes will study how some of the inventions of the Ancient Chinese and Roman Civilizations contributed to the Industrial Revolution. The Primary classes will explore how cities were created and have come to be a place to meet the needs of man.

Each of our themes are specially chosen for their ability to be broken down into parts that our youngest children can comprehend while being equally able to expand into detailed areas for our older students. Topics are thoroughly researched by members of our outstanding teaching staff and are developed in specific detail for each age group.
